Truck Driver's Blues

Runnin' on down the road,
Not another soul in sight.
Dark thoughts running through my mind…
Mile markers go by slow this time of night.

How are they doing at home?
Is everything getting done?
Will the world come crashing down,
Before I'm done with this run?

I really miss those I have to leave behind
When I put this big truck into the wind and away.
I have to wonder what I'll miss this week…
Diesel runs in my blood, that's all I can say…

Over the mountains and through the woods
I'm gliding in my big heavy sleigh
Dispatcher's got me on another all-nighter,
This load just isn't going my way…

Four wheelers are getting on my last nerve,
Campers and U-Hauls on every hill and curve
They don't care I don't have any spare time,
Hate the double nickels, how far to that state line?

The DOT's doin' checks.
My load is a bit overweight.
My logbook could be better.
I'm genuine commercial bear bait.

I guess that Great God of Trucking is smiling today
Through the scales, over the state line, didn't have to pay.
Blue skies, put on the shades, set the cruise,
Made it through another night of those Truck Driver's Blues.
